I love the opening notes of iris in this clean, pretty fragrance and wish it lasted throughout the day. If that were the case I would always try to keep this in my collection.After the first couple of hours however, it dries down on me to a soft nondescript sweet freesia.I really like the design and heavy weight of the bottle as well.I am glad I found this at Marshalls and opted for the larger size although I doubt that I would repurchase.

This had a very floral opening--I got a lot of iris and violet from this--but it wasn't too strong or oppressive, very light and nice. Ultimately, though, it just didn't impress me as anything special. I can't even say why, exactly, which is frustrating. It's like that guy that should be perfect for you, but there's just no spark. (I have to add that I just had a sample, but I've seen the bottle, and it's very elegant. If I were to buy a full-size, it would be as much for the bottle as for the fragrance.)

I was really surprised by this perfume. I usually do not tend to smell floral perfume but this one is nice! I got some compliments using it and I was suprised because the staying power is great too! I will not purchase because I agree that it smells like a really expensive soap, but it's a nice one!

It smells like a very expensive bar of Lever 2000. But to me, that's not a bad thing. Very clean soap. It surprised me because I felt with a name like D'Extase it would be more intense or spicy or.....anything besides this clean floral perfume.

This fragrance is refreshing and I get compliments every time I wear it. For ME, it goes on with a different fragrance that at first I didn't like. I sampled Marchesa and while walking around the mall several people asked me what I was wearing because it smelled so light and refreshing.. I bought the Christmas 2013 Gift Set from Sephora and while I do like the fragrance, I believe it is WAY overpriced (but then again aren't all fragrances overpriced lately?)! Yes, the packaging is lovely, I'm just not impressed by packaging, for me I'd rather have a lower price and less fussing with the packaging that gets thrown away anyway! I stated I would buy again, let me specify that I would buy the lotion by itself along with the "rollerball" purse size.

I agree with the previous review. On me it smells like jasmine soap. Not my cup of tea and not worth the investment. Glad I only have this as a sample. I will not purchase.

I'm not understating it when I say this simply didn't work on me. Smelled overwhelmingly soapy with a number of distinctively unpleasant notes. One in particular smelled like dust to me - you know the scent when you empty the vacuum? That grainy, dusty, almost burnt dirt smell? Another note smelled like musk and rotting fruit. I don't know what the heck the notes were MEANT to be in this perfume, but they sure didn't work with my skin's pH! I love Marchesa as a fashion house, but their perfume? Not so much. (09/24/13, 8:45pm) Update: For those of you who LOVE this perfume, you'll be very pleased to know once you've sprayed it on yourself, it stays put! I tried removing this with all manner of lotions, removers and wipes. I finally went upstairs to the bathroom to scrub this off my arms - had to use a firm bristle scrubbing brush & antibacterial soap. My arms are sore but at least the horrible perfume is finally GONE!!

God, I want this !!! I received a sample of this at Sephora and used the whole, little, spray sample in 2 days! I LOVE the way this smells! I can't even describe it- I am much better at describing makeup than fragrances- because I don't know what specific flowers smell like! (Except for roses, of course.) All I know is, Marchesa is a soft floral and it smells better after you give it a chance to dry down... but there is a downside to this. I find that the fragrance only lasts about 4-5 hours on me, and I would like it to stay with me all day because it is so pretty! It kind of reminds me of a fresh, laundry smell... mmmmm. My only dilemma is... do I splurge the $60 and buy a whole bottle if it has such a weak performance? Or should I try and find something that smells similar that has greater staying power? What to do, what to do... but I still rate it with 5 stars (lipsticks) because the scent of Marchesa is still quite lovely IMO.

I smell lots of iris in the beginning. Second notes brings out loads of sweet white jasmine petals all the way to the dry down. Marchesa smells very alluring. So far i like it.

I'm not getting the complexity or green/earthy tones from this that other reviews have mentioned. Marchesa is intensely soapy and artificial smelling, like a mix of laundry soap and sharp, chemical white florals. It actually smells rather cheap on my skin, and is so strong that it starts to give me a headache after a few minutes. Nothing about it smells really unique or unusual to me.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
